Question:

When it comes to writing, reading is just as important! Who is an author you admire and what do you like about their writing style? What style choices would you incorporate into your writing?

Answer:

One of my favorite authors is Mark Twain. I admire his use of humor through his lovable characters and the incorporation of vernacular speech in his books, like "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." His descriptions of landscapes are detailed and vivid, so it feels like you are right in the thick of it with his characters. I grew up in Los Angeles, where the vernacular can vary just from county to county, so I would like to include the unique voices of the different LA neighborhoods into my writing. I also want to write books that are uplifting and funny!

Answer:

Personification is when inanimate objects or abstract ideas are given human characteristics. In "She sweeps with many-colored brooms" by Emily Dickinson, the setting sun is personified as a housewife who "sweeps with many-colored Brooms." Dickenson uses the imagery of a sweeping housewife to represent the beauty of the setting sun's rays as they change color while traveling across the land.

Question:

If you were to write a persuasive speech about your favorite food, how would you appeal to an audience using Ethos (Credibility), Logos (Logic), and Pathos (Emotion)? Please tell me your favorite food and provide a brief example (1-2 sentences) for each rhetorical strategy.

Answer:

My favorite food is sushi. Ethos I have been eating sushi for over two decades from a variety of restaurants across Washington and California. These states are known to have access to quality seafood. Logos You should eat sushi because it is healthy, rich in nutrients and can introduce you to Japanese cuisine. Japanese cuisine is known for its health benefits and is rapidly becoming popular world-wide. Pathos I remember the first time I sat down at a sushi restaurant and the server set down a plate of vividly colored fish perched atop glittering white rice. My love of sushi blossomed then and expanded into learning more about Japanese culture by taking language classes.
